Back in July, we heard the first rumors of a possible return to Le Mans competition for Ferrari . We heard the first semi-official confirmation of this return in December when Ferrari president, Luca di Montezemolo , decided to comment on those rumors.
The firestorm is now growing, as a very strange Ferrari prototype was caught testing on the Mugello race track, which may be the ultimate confirmation that the Italian company could indeed return to Le Mans .
A while ago, we came across a video that revealed a LaFerrari testing something other than its usual hybrid powertrain. Now, new rumors suggest that the engine tested was not a turbocharged V-6 engine, but likely a supercharged V-8 engine or a hybrid powertrain that are more suitable for endurance racing.
Along with the new engine, the Le Mans LaFerrari will also be equipped with lots of aerodynamic modifications and a huge rear wing to produce the downforce needed for racing, according to the above image.
